DI-524 and VISTA: impossible to configure WPA PSK (AES)

To all experts,

My wireless connection is set and works, but it is not secured.
I would like to secure the SSID using WPA2 PSK(AES).
This is what happens: when I enter a Preshare key, i.e.: "the car is black" and click on "Apply", the device is tring to restard and it will never ever work again.
I have to reset the D-Link and here we go again with the unsecured wireless access, that is working perfectly well, but unsecured.

Is there a bug or a user error?

WPA2 pre-share key must consist between 8 to 63 Ascii characters.

But you have spaces in the sentence the car is black.

Space is not a ascii character. Did you try without spaces?

How do I secure the network


The securing process in your wireless router is set by choosing the "Wireless Settings" (with my Netgear, anyway) screen. The bottom portion of the screen lets you set various things re. security, like WEP, WPS-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK (AES), and on. Different levels of security demand different types of passwords as well.

Cant connect my laptop wirelessly...


Try to reconfigure your wireless network on your DI-524.

To access the configuration page of your router by Default type in on the address bar 192.168.0.1. On the login page by default the Username is admin and leave the Password blank.

If inside the the configuration page of the router

>Click Home
> Click on WIRELESS located on the left side and you will have the wireless setting of your network
> Change the wireless network name
> Under security choose either WEP or WPA -PSK for this type of router.
> Type in your new network key (also know as Passphrase of Key1).

For WEP use 0 to 9 Number or A to F character and it should be exactly 10 characters.
For WPA-PSK you can use alpha numeric from 0 to 9 and from A to Z. The minimun character would be 8.

> Click on apply
> Click on continue.
Try accessing your wireless network first using your wireless computer. If you are connected to your wireless network try connecting to the Internet.

DI-524 Router


1. Log into the web-based configuration by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1).

2. The default username is admin (all lower case) and the password is blank (nothing). Click OK.

3. Click on the Home tab and then click Wireless on the left hand side.

4. Select WPA-PSK using the radio buttons.

5. Choose a key (password). The key is an alpha-numeric password between 8 and 63 characters long. The password can include symbols (!?*&_) and spaces. Make sure you enter this key exactly the same on all other wireless clients.

6. Click on the Apply button then click on the Continue button to save your settings.

Note: If you are configuring your router from a wireless adapter, you will lose connectivity as soon as you click Apply. You must enable WPA-PSK on your adapter and enter the same exact passphrase as you entered on your router.

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.
